RAW Romeo Akbar Walter movie cast: John Abraham, Sikander Kher, Raghubir Yadav, Jackie Shroff, Mouni Roy

RAW Romeo Akbar Walter ratings: 2/5 two stars on five

In this RAW Romeo Akbar Walter movie review, I would like to say that the film is what it says it is raw and unpolished

Set in 1971 during the Indo Pak tension RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter is the story of an Indian banker, Rehmat Ali aka Romeo played by John Abraham. He is chosen for a special mission by the RAW chief Jackie Shroff to go to Pakistan undercover as a spy. Does Romeo begin to send back Pakistani secrets to Indian authority about plans of bombing an Indian air base? Yes, this is  a thrilling story but only just

Having been the lead in films like Madras Cafe, Parmanu and Satyameva Jayate, in the recent past John fits into the role of spy like a glove he is completely believable in his role as undercover agent. Completely believable John to me is the male version of Katrina Kaif

OK so this is a spy thriller and therefore the operative word here should have been a thriller. I cannot but reel back to another recent film on the same topic Raazi sadly what  is lacking here is the element of suspense and thrill that would have kept me at the edge of the seat. In this RAW Romeo Akbar Walter movie review its clear that the story and how its told is where the film faults

In fact, the telling of the story leaves much to be asked for Action too in this film comes in a watered down manner and therefore slows the pace of the story on screen.

Also a film like RAW Romeo Akbar Walter RAW is as much as a game of the mind as it is of battle. RAW does well in the action department there is not too much all-out action in the film but in the mind game department it just does not measure up. We do not know what is going on in Romeo’s mind and how he  has to fight an emotional was as much as a tactical one is not fully explores

IN the end, I’d give the film RAW Romeo Akbar Walter movie review a rating of 2/5 two stars out of five  John Abraham and the premise of the film getting a star each
